This is a simple development board for the Atmel ATtiny1634. It provides the familiar 6-pin FTDI header for connecting to serial and ISP header for programming via ISP, and it has the capacitor for auto reset. A jumper is can be used to enable or disable auto reset. It can be used with breadboard, by mounting the pins pointing down, or as a standalone board for use with female dupont jumpers, with the pins pointing up. For ease of connection w/out breadboard, four Vcc and Gnd pins are provided, instead of just one. An LDO regulator is provided for use with an external power source, or it can be powered direct from Vcc and Gnd pins. Available with and without a crystal.
Using the core available from my Github at https://github.com/SpenceKonde/ATTinyCore the ATtiny1634 can be used with the Arduino IDE, with optiboot bootloader support.
This board is sold ASSEMBLED, but WITHOUT PIN HEADER (as shown).
For the bare boards at a great price, see:ATTiny1634 breakout (bare board)
What sets this apart from a typical ATtiny1634 breakout board (other than the fact that they don't seem to exist) or generic SOIC-20 breakout board is that it provides the appropriate header for serial programming of an ATtiny1634, and the chip comes pre-programmed with the Optiboot bootloader, so programming it with the Arduino IDE is as simple as using an Arduino Pro Mini (You can always erase the bootloader by programming via the ISP header if you need the space and/or wish to program using Atmel Studio instead of Arduino).
We are proud to announce a new and improved version of this popular board, with a few exciting features - except where noted in option menu, all assembled ATTiny1634 boards use the new Rev. C design.
The Atmel ATtiny1634 microcontroller is an exciting and economical processor from Atmel's ATtiny line of 8-bit AVR microcontrollers. Although it doesn't have a third timer like the tiny841 does, the combination of large flash and SRAM memory, dual uarts, and 17 GPIO pins makes it a compelling package, filling a space between the smaller Tiny's, and the ever popular '328p. The second uart makes this chip particularly well suited for use with GPS, GSM, and serial WiFi adapters (like the ESP8266) without interfering with serial programming. For all boards without a crystal, the 1634R will be used - this differs only in that the internal oscillator is more tightly calibrated.
A CH340G-based serial adapter is available as an option. This will be supplied with a 6-pin cable as shown. These are mass production adapters, however they are a cut above the most common units, and have a switch to select 3.3v or 5v operation. They break out the pins necessary for programming one of these breakout boards, or an Arduino Pro Mini or similar - Vcc, Gnd, TX, RX, DTR and CTS.
For a fancier CH340G adapter which breaks out all pins, check out my own CH340G-based design.
Custom options are available for regulator and crystal - specify in order comments what regulator voltage and crystal you want. Note that at voltages above 4-4.5V, the internal oscillator runs too fast for UART communication (fig 26-64 on pg 274 of the datasheet), so the bootloader will not work and this configuration is not recommended. If you want a chip set to use the internal oscillator, and >3.3v regulator, please acknowledge that you are aware of this issue in the order comments (else I will contact you to confirm, which could delay your order). Available custom speeds are internal 1mhz or 8mhz, or external 7.3728, 8, 9.216, 11.0592, 12, 13.56, 14.318, 14.745 and 16 MHz and operating voltages of 1.8, 2.5, or 3.3v or 5v. Please refer to fig 24-1 on pg 230 of the datasheet for max rated clock speed at a given voltage - if you are requesting a crystal which is faster than the manufacturer spec for the regulator output voltage, please acknowledge in order comments that you know that you're asking for a board that is outside manufacturer spec (otherwise I will contact to confirm, delaying your order). Please allow 1-3 days extra processing time for custom order.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I build projects with Arduino (ATtinies almost exclusively, never anything bigger than a '328p) and Espruino (often both working together), and I make a lot of circuit boards for these projects. Particularly after using my ATtiny-prototyping board for my own projects, I realized that these would be useful to other people, and decided to start selling them here on Tindie.
Strip Board, Protoboard, prototyping board, solderable breadboard - whatever you want to call it - it has been a mainstay in electronics prototyping for decades, and hasn't changed much in the interim (not even in production quality, as they're still often single-sided and/or manufactured from low-grade phenolic resin instead of FR4). My prototyping board creations bring these into the modern era, offering a combination of 0.1" through-hole prototyping areas (consisting of groups of 2, 3 or 4 pins connected together, like solderable breadboard) and pads for common surface mount packages connected to through-holes for easy soldering. To handle projects of all sizes, I offer prototyping board as large as 4" x 4", down to less than an inch square in my Mini Protoboard line. Unlike most commercial prototyping board, these boards are made to the same quality standards as real PCBs. Through-holes are plated, and the boards are double sided. These are offered in both generic versions, and ones tailored to specific microcontrollers, like the Tiny84/85, or microcontroller boards, like the Espruino Pico, Arduino Pro Mini, and the wildly popular ESP8266.
ATtiny breakout boards:
I love the ATtiny lineup, particularly some of the less popular ones, like the incredibly full-featured ATtiny841, ATtiny1634, and ATtiny828. Breakout boards for these that had the features I wanted were not readily available - so I made my own. I've since expanded my product line to include breakout boards for the ATtiny861, ATtiny167, and ATtiny88 - and all of these are available both as bare boards and assembled. In addition to designing the hardware I also maintain [ATtinyCore Universal](https://github.com/SpenceKonde/ATTinyCore), which enables Arduino support for all these ATtiny's and more.
I also sell a number of other boards to fill what I felt were gaps in the market, including a breakout board for the popular LoRa/LoRaWAN modules from Microchip (the RN2483 and 2903), which has become one of my top selling items. I also sell MOSFET drivers and breakout boards for logic level MOSFETs operating at logic levels of 2.5v and lower - while a great number of MOSFETs are available that operate with very low gate voltages, these are almost invariably SMD parts which are difficult to use without a properly designed breakout board.
